Tales from the Fast Trains : Around Europe at 186mph, Paperback / softback Book

Tales from the Fast Trains : Around Europe at 186mph Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Tired of airport security queues, delays and all those extra taxes and charges, Tom Chesshyre embarks on a series of high-speed adventures across the Continent on its fast trains instead.

From shiny London St Pancras, Tom travels to places that wouldn't feature on a standard holiday wish-list, and discovers the hidden delights of mysterious Luxembourg, super-trendy Rotterdam, much-maligned Frankfurt and lovely lakeside Lausanne, via a pop concert in Lille.

It's 186 mph all the way - well, apart from a power cut in the Channel Tunnel on the way to Antwerp.

Is our idea of 'Europe' changing as its destinations become easier to reach? And what fun can you have at the ends of the lines? Jump on board and find out!
